The cow jumped over the Moon

When I was a child I had a book of nursery rhymes.

Hey Diddle diddle, the cat and the fiddle,
the cow jumped over the moon,
the little dog laughed to see much fun,
and the dish ran away with the spoon!
'Hey diddle diddle' confused me... as a small girl in her bunk bed reading the book, talking about the cow jumping over the moon? Silly book, why would a cow want to jump over the moon? What has a dish an a spoon have to do with it? The dog I could understand...I would laugh too.



Looking at the moon last night, I completely understood.

I want to jump over the moon. To share the joy it gives me when I look up into the starry sky; see it's beautiful glow lighting up the frosty ground. I feel I'm connected to it... I need to see it...more than the sun, it fills my soul with radiance...lights the way...gives me clarity in my creative path.

I wish for the magic of the full moon to enlighten you today.

I feel the same way when I look at the moon!

The last few days have had the largest moon of the year.
